ShareIn 2018, the Guardian Nigeria reported that more than 190,000 qualified people were turned away from seven public universities in Nigeria. In a first-of-its-kind move, the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) has given Miva Open University, owned by uLesson, permission to open Nigeria’s first fully online university. MIVA Open University can now give full Bachelor’s degree programs through Online Distance e-Learning (ODeL) mode; it has this license. The opening of Miva Open University is a good step toward solving the problem of Nigerians not being able to get into college. The university will give students who can’t go to traditional universities a much-needed option.
